Early on in most history classes, whether world, American or your state history, we learn while there is religious freedom in this country, Christianity is still the most practiced religion in America, I really believed that until I got out more and even living in the south I meet more Atheist, Muslims, and people who are 'Christians' but not that religious. I'm not judging Christians who aren't that religious because we are all imperfect, however that leave a minority of Christians who strive to follow God's word.It's no wonder people think badly of Christians who wants to follow the minority.

Yes, I think it is becoming less common in the US- more like watered down as you say. In most of Europe I would say that it is for all intents and purposes it has died in recent times. Most in Europe will say they are atheist or "secularist" (whatever the heck that means).

However, most of humanity has a "god gene"

"The Evolution of the God Gene

By NICHOLAS WADE

IN the Oaxaca Valley of Mexico, the archaeologists Joyce Marcus and Kent Flannery have gained a remarkable insight into the origin of religion.

Universal Religion has been found in societies at every stage of development. Catholic Bishops as they filed into St. Patrick’s Cathedral in 2008, and at a temple in South Korea, Buddhist monks paid homage to the Buddha.

During 15 years of excavation they have uncovered not some monumental temple but evidence of a critical transition in religious behavior. The record begins with a simple dancing floor, the arena for the communal religious dances held by hunter-gatherers in about 7,000 B.C. It moves to the ancestor-cult shrines that appeared after the beginning of corn-based agriculture around 1,500 B.C., and ends in A.D. 30 with the sophisticated, astronomically oriented temples of an early archaic state.

This and other research is pointing to a new perspective on religion, one that seeks to explain why religious behavior has occurred in societies at every stage of development and in every region of the world. Religion has the hallmarks of an evolved behavior, meaning that it exists because it was favored by natural selection. "

^^^^Therefore, some sort of worship will take the place of Christianity imo to fill this natural void for many. Will it be Islam which is still "going strong"??? I think governments hope the worship will eventually go to our "glorious leaders".

I think you are right most first world countries are OK with religious freedom because it would mean, people will put less trust in religion and more trust in the government and Islam is growing all over if anything I won't be suprised if they take over as the most practice religion in the world only thing is, if they get into higher power you can expect our rights to slowly, but surely be taken away we'll be living back in the 1950s.
